Clippers Fire Head Coach Kim Hughes

by April 15, 2010

Move over, Eddie Jordan. Kim Hughes would like to squeeze into the unemployment line. From the Clip Show’s official site: “The Los Angeles Clippers today relieved Kim Hughes of his duties as interim head coach. The remaining members of the team’s coaching staff will remain in their current roles at this time. ‘We appreciate Kim’s contributions during his time here especially over the last two and a half months,’ stated Clippers’ President Andy Roeser. ‘But we also know that our responsibility is to do what is in the organization’s immediate best interests for its ability to move forward. This season was an overall disappointment and certainly fell short of both our expectations and what should rightly have been anticipated by our fans. We will move deliberately and productively to regain the successful competitive position we had all hoped for when this past season began.’ A search for a new coach has already begun. There are no leading candidates. In order to maintain the ability to take advantage of the widest sample of available and quality coaches, there will be no stated completion timetable.”
